Hello Happy 4th, I recently heard that the reason Bruce Ismay boarded a lifeboat to save his life, may have been this- this way he could take responsibility for the disaster, and he knew they would need someone to be a scapegoat. Do you believe that Ismay somehow knew that he would be the villain of this tragedy for the rest of his life? or do you believe that if he had known ,he would have stayed on the sinking ship. These Theories give us something to think about. I guess the obvious Question is- Bruce Ismay really the villain that everyone believes him to be.
